Sunday 27 May, open from 6pm - late

Hamilton Square, Birkenhead

Birkenhead Town Hall becomes the canvas for a spectacular 3D projection by award-winning Illuminos. The magnificent building will burst with light and sound against the dark night sky, with a dazzling display inspired by Birkenhead’s people, places and history.

We’ll be waiting until it gets dark to get the finale underway, so the projection is currently scheduled to start around 10pm but there’s plenty to keep everyone entertained in the build up to the main event.

We’ll have stunning performances from singing pirates and circus entertainers on the main stage. Encounter magical maritime creatures and even some surprising ships funnels in and around Hamilton Square and get involved in creative and circus activities. There will be fantastic food and drink on offer, or feel free to bring your own food and soak up the festival atmosphere from the comfort of your picnic blanket (but no BBQs please!).
